"Joy" ride. The 73-foot yacht crashes through the Bay of Biscay

The trip should be a self-experiment in terms of seaworthiness. For the first time on the high seas. Sailing through several nights for the first time. Of course, you don't really have to start in Biskay in April. The area can only be sailed from May onwards. But with a four million yacht that should be doable.
Not correct. The stomach bounces in a 45-knot storm. No matter whether you are sitting on a luxury yacht or a 30-foot Bavaria. Pain warps the body.
After a day and a half, everything feels numb and empty. The sense of time has been lost. Nothing matters. Guard? OK. Taxes? OK. Then the transformation: on the bike, life comes back into the body. The world is getting colored again. Full steam ahead in the rising sun. The splash water throws rainbows over the foredeck. The fun begins.
